Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with Caramel

There probably have been thousands of ideas in the history of ideas that have looked good on paper, but in the end never really turned out to be very good. For example, dnL, Cowboy Troy, and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.

Oh wait, I’m sorry. All of those things pretty much also sucked on paper. But you get the idea.

Now we can add the new Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with Caramel to the list. Usually, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have the ability to make women orgasm more quickly than any man (Or woman. Or vibrating object. Or picture of Brad Pitt.) could.

However, after eating a couple packs of this new Reese’s variation, I can safely say that women will not orgasm after eating it, because the caramel is apparently a culinary cock block.

I really like caramel. I like them on apples. I like them in Twix. I like Eva Longoria.

But the caramel in the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with Caramel seemed to overpower the flavor of the peanut butter.

It’s kind of like how Star Jones sometimes overpowers the rest women on The View, not only because she’s loud and obnoxious, but also because I think the other women are afraid to say anything because Star might eat them.

There’s a reason why Barbara Walters doesn’t sit next to her, and that reason is…Appetizer.

The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with Caramel were good, but the caramel made the peanut butter cups a little too sweet for my tastes. It also made the peanut butter cups is a little too unstable for my tastes.

With normal Reese’s, the top and bottom are pretty firm when you pinch them. However, because the caramel, which is underneath the peanut butter, has more of a liquid consistency than peanut butter, the chocolate at bottom of each peanut butter cup is kind of soft, which could easily crack, cause a gooey caramel-ly mess, and make you more edible for Star Jones.


Item: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with Caramel
Purchase Price: 53 cents
Rating: 3 out of 5
Pros: Good, but not as good as the original. Eva Longoria. Caramel apples.
Cons: Star Jones. Caramel dominated the peanut butter flavor, making it a little too sweet. Caramel on the bottom makes the peanut butter cup less stable. Using the word “because” three times in a sentence. Star Jones when she’s hungry.

    why must they mess with a good thing…those money hungry asses…unfortunately through the whole review all i could think of was star jones devouring her weight in caramel reeses peanut butter cups and then having her husband lick the excess stuff from her chin off.

  2. Megan says:

    i know, i know, long time no comment. but i just had to say, i laughed out loud at “the caramel is apparently a culinary cock block”

    happy holidays!

    Bryan – Yes, they definitely do make a slightly unstable mutation. Kind of like, a baby with Julia Roberts’ teeth and Angelina Jolie’s lips.

    cybele – I like the crumbliness of the peanut butter too. That definitely separates the Reese’s from generic peanut butter cups.

    Laina – If you do try them, I’d suggest eating them over the sink.

    Toni – I’d suggest Target, but they’ve been really hard to find.

    MAC Dodge – I say it like I would Gar-ga-mel. Ca-ra-mel.

    Tara – If you don’t want anyone to be messing around with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, I’d suggest you call Reese’s and say, “I hear to be messin’ with my man Reese’s. Don’t me messin’ wit him. Cause if you do, I’m goin’ be all up in your face, bitch. Oh, don’t you be actin’ like you’re better than me. Cause you ain’t. Don’t let me catch you messing with him again. Or else it’s on.”

    Nicki – That was a horrible visual you stuck in my head. I think I’m going to be sick.

    Megan – Hi there, Megan! That caramel thing is just the truth. Happy holidays!

  4. you cannot improve on the Reese’s PB Cup….why do they even bother to try?

    Webmiztris – Because they can…Because they can. (shakes head)

  6. I think these guys at Reese’s know they have a good standard product, but they think they can bring a few more into the fan club with a variation or two.

    This one doesn’t do it for me and your review makes me less likely to try it. They must’ve had somebody who liked the concept in taste tests.

    These things rule. My dentists had a candy distributor hook up and I got a couple. It sounds strange but they are tasty little nuggets!

  8. marvo says:

    Kelly Ritchey – It must’ve been the same people who thought the Triple Whopper was a good idea.

    mIKO – Wait? Your dentist has a candy distributor hook up? I smell something fishy going on. You get candy from your dentist. You get cavity from the candy from your dentist. You go to dentist who gave you candy that gave you a cavity. You give dentist cash to get rid of cavity. Sounds like a vicious cycle to me.
